This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Vauxhall Astra Hatchback review.

Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

Early cars were fitted with a driver’s airbag and optional passenger/sidebags; dual airbags was standard from 1999; all have side impact bars, seatbelt pre-tensioners and a four star Euro NCAP crash-test rating. Security is average: all models have an immobiliser and unique-fit stereo; more expensive models have alarms.

Boot is massive and easy to load. Interior space could be better - CD multichangers are mounted in glove box - easy to use but takes valuable space.
